Policy Development

Human Resource and employment legislation is a complex, ever-changing world, but it is a critical aspect of any business—whether you’ve got 1, or 100 employees. At Lakeland HR we’ve got a proven process that sets your organization on solid HR footing.


Initial Needs Analysis

Your organization is unique and requires a thorough analysis of where you’re at, where you’re going and how we can improve your HR policies.  Our goal at Lakeland HR is to assist your plans for growth and improved employee productivity, while also decreasing your exposure to the legal risks involved with managing employees. 


Information Gathering

As an entrepreneur or manager, you know good decisions are based on sound information.  We have the same belief. Once we’ve completed an initial needs analysis to get a 10,000 foot view of your organization, we will then meet with key stakeholders to confidentially review any past issues, determine specific context, verify policy intent and start to develop a solutions framework that will best meet your needs. 


Policy Development

This is where we get to work.  The word ‘policy binder’ might not sound exciting to you right now, but it provides a much-needed structure for your team, sets your business up for future growth and helps to protect you against any legal risks.  We will draft your policies and the collaborate with you to ensure that they are exactly what your business needs—from Privacy Policies that ensure your adherence to PIPA to Sexual Harassment Policies that provide clarity in stressful situations.


Final Approval and Implementation 

We don’t want a policy binder that sits on the shelf gathering dust - we want it to work for you as intended.  We always include a training session with management and provide optional facilitation services for roll-out to employees.
